This Little Light
We produced this podcast about falling in love with music, hosted by Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, in support of his nonprofit, the Silverlake Conservatory of Music. Distributed by Cadence13. Listen now!
“I wanted to do This Little Light to benefit my music school, the Silverlake Conservatory of Music,” Flea said in a statement. “The idea behind it being music education, falling in love with music and embarking on a musical journey for your life. Everybody’s path is so different, and it’s fascinating to learn how every musician came to music and developed their study of it over time.”
“[Prism] an email newsletter that focuses on making wellness information more accessible and the idea that 'wellness' — however you define it — is an imperfect and nonlinear process.”
“On top of helping scale brand awareness, the investors' support will enable the Happy Viking team to further communicate the benefits of plant-based superfoods and expand their existing portfolio with new product innovations.”
“Essentially, the team at Parallel wants to take back the word 'wellness.' People shouldn't feel intimidated, excluded, or priced out by companies purporting to help them live better. So, we aim to support a new class of wellness companies that are driving a more accessible, inclusive, and expansive vision of wellness. And how do we support these companies, you might ask? In two ways: as a strategic investor in startups and as a celebrity talent partnership studio.”
“At Parallel, we tend to do more projects around mental health because that's a space where influential people can really destigmatize issues and do a ton of good.”
“As a partner for Parallel, Florence collaborates with others to build and invest in content for various businesses.”
“I love the sound of my feet on the ground and my thoughts unraveling. I don't want anything else. Listening to music is a sacred time for me. Sometimes I'll listen while I'm playing chess and realize I'm not actually listening.”
